The Great Forest of Osreton is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.342 billion Osretonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otrium. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Osretonian economy, worth 23.1 trillion soljoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 17,197 soljoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', and the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Osreton's national animal is the Sasquatch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Osreton is ranked 227,789th in the world and 153rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.19 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
